Help! My painstaking hours in Excel won't transfer to Powerpoint!

I just spent FOREVER trying to add colour to a graph in Excel. The graph was copied and pasted from a pdf file of an article.
I want the graph to go on a poster that I have due tomorrow morning. However, when I tried to copy and paste my new colourful version, it just came out as black and white on Powerpoint.
I have colour selected on Powerpoint. The way I coloured my graph was by inserting shapes (ex rectangles) over the ones that were there, and then adding colour to them. I realized that I can move the original graph away and the coloured bars remain.
This took me a really long time! How can I save my efforts?
